Thyroglossal duct cyst (TGDC) is one of most common congenital diseases of the midline of the neck. Most TGDC cases require treatment in the cases of cosmetic problems or recurrent infection, and a Sistrunk operation is considered to be the standard treatment. However, less invasive treatments are sometimes used, and sclerotherapy with OK-432 or ethanol is(More)
Accidental ingestion of foreign bodies is a common pediatric problem. The majority of such cases occur between 6 months and 3 years. When several magnets are ingested, they can be attracted to each other through the intestinal wall, causing necrosis and intestinal perforation or fistula, so they should be removed while they are still in the stomach.

Mesenteric inflammation caused by complicated duplication cysts rarely occurs. We present and discuss the imaging findings of a mesenteric inflammatory mass caused by complicated duplication cysts in an infant. Sonography showed a complex, echogenic cystic mass occupying the right subhepatic region containing two thick-walled cystic lesions inseparable from(More)
We report a case of a 37-year-old female with a mesothelial cyst of the round ligament presenting as a palpable mass. The mass appeared sonographically as a fusiform structure with several cystic anechoic areas and was misdiagnosed preoperatively as herniation of the right ovary.
PURPOSE Late-presenting congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) beyond the neonatal period is rare and often misdiagnosed, with delayed treatment.

Fetal primary small bowel volvulus without atresia or malrotation is an extremely rare but life-threatening surgical emergency. We report a case of primary small bowel volvulus that presented as sudden fetal distress and was diagnosed on the basis of the 'whirl-pool sign' of fetal sonography. This diagnosis led to emergency operation after birth at the(More)
True congenital epithelium-lined cysts of the pancreas are rare, and the prenatal diagnosis of a true pancreatic cyst has been reported only rarely. In this article, the authors report a 3-day-old girl with histologically proven true pancreatic cyst that was detected by prenatal ultrasonography. The cystic mass was located in the left upper side of the(More)
Congenital tuberculosis is a rare disease which is curable after early diagnosis. Making an early diagnosis of tuberculosis in an infant is difficult, however, because of its nonspecific clinical findings. It therefore requires a high index of suspicion. In this paper we report the case of an infant with disseminated congenital tuberculosis involving the(More)

However, its long-term result is rarely reported in children. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the patients who underwent LS for pediatric chronic ITP from June 1998 to April 2007. RESULTS There were 18 patients(More)
